The Church is not a building but a gathering of God’s people. We’re called to show His love to the world through His power. We believe that Life Church has a part to play in that and to help us do that we are going to be relocating our Sunday services to a bigger venue, starting on Sunday 14th May 2023.

Whilst this is an exciting prospect, any change can feel daunting! We’ve put together some ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ below, which we hope will help you to understand what we are doing and why.

If there is a question that you have that we’ve not answered, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us directly, or speak to a member of the team on a Sunday.


When will we be moving?

Sunday 14th May! On this Sunday we will be having our normal morning service at The Vassall’s Centre at the usual time of 10:30am. We will open the doors for refreshments at 10:10am.

How do I get there?

The Vassall’s Centre is a 3 min drive (or 10 min walk) from Forest Rd and is close to Fishponds High Street where there are a number of bus connections.

The full address is The Vassall’s Centre, Gill Avenue, Fishponds, Bristol. BS16 2QQ

Can I volunteer to be part of a team to help this move?

In our move to Vassall’s we want to see our activities grow along with our church. As such, we’d love to encourage you to be part of a team, serving once a month, if you consider Life Church to be your home.

You can register your interest online or you can speak to a member of the hospitality team at church on a Sunday.

Can I invite family and friends to church?

Absolutely yes! One of the reasons for us to move is so that we can create more space to see people connected, contributing and growing. Often, people may want to come to church but feel nervous to unless they are asked. Who could you invite to church this week?

The Vassall’s Centre is big - where do I go?

We will be using the main entrance, which is directly ahead of you if you come in through the main gates on Gill Avenue. We will have our flags out so you can find us!

Where do I park?

The Vassall’s Centre has a large car park which is free for us to use on Sundays. Simply drive in the main entrance, bear left and find a space!

Is anything different happening with our children’s work?

The Vassall’s Centre gives us additional space for our children’s work. As you arrive, simply register your children as normal with a member of the team (they will be situated near the entrance) and they will direct you as to where to go.

Is there a creche?

Yes! There will be an area available for pre-school kids to be during the service. Details of this will be available from the kids team and / or the hospitality team when you arrive.

Will the service be live-streamed?

Our service is currently live streamed for anyone who requests the link, with the messages uploaded publicly on the week following. This will continue to be the case and if you would like the link, you can request it from a member of the hospitality or senior leadership team.

Will we meet at Forest Road in the future?

From Sunday 14th May, all our morning services will be at The Vassall’s Centre until further notice. Our evening meetings will continue at Forest Rd for the time being.

Our Friday Kids & Youth programs will also continue to run from Forest Road on Friday evenings.
